    Morning folks ,

    Having an issue with my Sony Ericsson X10 Xperia. When it is plugged in to the usb port and is mounted i have tried to access the memory card and it comes up on screen as " Memory card unavailable " which means i cant access the memory card until i unplug it from the computer. Is this how it works or does my phone have a fault.


    Cheers

    Riz

    Looks like the drivers need to be re-installed

    Go into device manager (search it on the start menu), locate your phone (make sure it is connected), right click and uninstall then unplug your phone from your computer.

    Now re-connect your phone and it will install the drivers :)

    You can sometimes trick the pc into reinstalling the drivers by putting your phone into USB debugging mode and then connecting it. Its Menu>Settings>Applications>Development and tick USB debugging.

    My instructions refer to your phone, once you have ticked it, plug in the phone to the PC and see what happens.

    Sorry about earlier was having a blonde moment no offence intended. I dont think i worderd my problem clearly so here goes. Xperia X10 when mounted to the pc via Usb i can view files etc on the computer but when i try to go through the phone to see what videos i have on phone so i know what to label them i get this message on phone " MEMORY CARD UNAVAILABLE " while still connected to the PC. I take it you can only view files while being connected to one either the PC or the phone and not both together ??

    Ahhhh, it all becomes clear!:D Yes when the SD card is being used as a device on your PC the phone can't access it.

    Gosh that was easy. Any more questions!?;)

    Yes it will, supposed to start at the end of the month but depends on how blonde you are:eek::D... no, no sorry meant to say depends how long your carrier takes to check it and stick its own bits of bloatware into the mix. So hopefully people will start seeing it in November.

    In all seriousness, you might want to check what version you are on at the moment Menu>Settings>About Phone and scroll to bottom, the most current UK build is R2BA026 but the last digit does vary between carriers. As long as you are in the 20's you are probably OK to wait til Android 2.1 comes out.

    You should receive a notifcation on your phone if its set to automatically check.

    Product Launch Blog

    If you scroll down a bit on the above link there is a list of what it will contain. Basically it will make the phone faster, the battery should last longer, you get HD video, live wallpapers and hopefully some bug fixes. In my own view, it won't make my day to day use of the phone very different but will add a few nice bits on top.

    2.1 is the next big update but dont expect loads though, a few apps, slightly faster, live wallpapers (battery killer) and going by other phones with 2.1 a longer battery life with the much touted HD recording but that was promised before the phone was released. Plus we was meant to get HD before 2.1 so...

    I'm going to stop now as I will just rant about SE again...

    You could download a file manager from the market, something like Astro or Linda are both good and then you can use them to rename the videos.

    And I am always happy to answer questions on the forum either in a thread or by PM but I don't give out my email address sorry. You can access the forum on your phone however as long as you have a 3g signal.
